Jerry Falwell Jr. wants the FBI to investigate ‘criminal conspiracy’ against him at Liberty University – By Tim Pearce (Washington Examiner) / Sept 10 2019
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. is sharing information with the FBI in an attempt to expose what he alleges is a criminal conspiracy to oust him from power.
Falwell told Hill.TV on Tuesday that the FBI is reviewing university documents related to a spate of recent leaks from current and former employees of the university. Falwell said the leaks were of stolen documents being used by his opponents to damage his reputation.
“Our attorneys have determined that this small group of former board members and employees, they’re involved in a criminal conspiracy, are working together to steal Liberty property in the form of emails and provided them to reporters,” Falwell Jr. said.
Falwell’s comments come after Politico published a story Monday outlining “how Falwell and his wife, Becki, consolidated power at Liberty University and how Falwell presides over a culture of self-dealing, directing university resources into projects and real estate deals in which his friends and family have stood to make personal financial gains.”
